Cheerfulness in the face of adversity characterises The Monster in the Hall by Capsize Collective and New Celts at The Space on the Mile.
Any preconceptions about a play depicting five-a-side football should instantly be put aside for Tom Wells’s Jumpers For Goalposts.
Edgy and raw, but not always consistent, Some Voices from Spearhead Theatre and New Celts at theSpace on the Mile tackles difficult subject matters with humour and humanity.
